Watch: Dog causes havoc after getting on to course at cyclocross race

The latest in a long line of canines to find themselves running amok during a bike race

Winning a cyclocross race is no mean feat. The mud, cold conditions and climbing on and off your bike to get round the course. Many people, understandably so, give the winter cycling offering a big 'no thanks'.

However, in a week where 'Dogs at Polling Stations' gave a more lighthearted feel to the UK's general election, our canine friends clearly haven't had enough of the limelight just yet.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
